    The Superintendent and Deputy Superintendent of Sachem School District (Christopher Pellettieri and John O'Keefe, respectively) attended the civic meeting to present information on the upcoming budget vote on Tuesday May 17th .  The tax levy will be increasing by 2.07%, within the NYS tax cap.  The main driver of the increase is the extension of the middle and senior high school class day from 8 periods to 9 periods.  Details on the budget can be found at this link:
